Description

lt;b>A fresh exploration of a redeeming, dynamic, and radically different way to hold one's religion

Samir Selmanovic—who grew up a in a culturally Muslim family in Croatia, converted to Christianity as a soldier in the then-Yugoslavian army, and went on to become a Christian pastor in Manhattan and in Southern California—looks at how our ongoing and sometimes violent power struggles over who owns God and what God wants for the world and its peoples are not serving God, humanity, or our planet.

  • Shows how our religions have become self-serving, God-management systems, however Selmanovic contends—change is possible
  • Offers a path for people of all faiths and traditions for living together on our fragile earth
  • Karen Armstrong said that the book is 'asking the right questions at the right time'

This is a personal story and a moving exploration of a new way of treasuring one's own religion while discovering God, goodness, and grace in others and in their traditions.

Samir Selmanovic is a founder and Christian co-leader of Faith House Manhattan and serves on the Interfaith Relations Committee of the National Council of Churches. (samirselmanovic.com)

A personal and moving exploration of how people of any faith can treasure what is theirs, while discovering God, goodness, and grace in others and their traditions.

"Samir Selmanovic is asking the right questions at the right time, and refusing the consolations of certainty at a time when strident orthodoxies atheist as well as religiousare perilously dividing us."
KAREN ARMSTRONG, author of The Battle for God and A History of God

"Why are thousands not saying what this man is saying? Such obvious truth must be made even more obvious . . . for all of us and for the future of humanity."
Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation

"We need a million more Samirspeople of conviction and humility who know that the vast mystery called God calls us not to the arrogance of 'ownership' but to the beloved community."
Parker J. Palmer, author, Let Your Life Speak and The Courage to Teach

"Samir Selmanovic offers a deeply personal reflection on faith, doubt, and ultimately, spiritual peace."
Daisy Khan, executive director, American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA)

"[T]his love song to the God of all Existence is . . . a work of hope and optimism."
Rabbi Marcia Prager, author, The Path of Blessing: Experiencing the Energy and Abundance of the Divine

"If atheists, agnostics, and non-religious people like myself want to gain understanding and improve the world . . . we need to read . . . the freshest and wisest voices of modern progressive religion. Samir Selmanovic's is just such a fresh voice."
Greg Epstein, Harvard University, and author, Good Without God: What a Billion Non-Religious People Do Believe
